Oskar G. Stonorov House is a historic home located in Charlestown Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1938, from the stone walls of an existing stone and frame farmhouse. It is "L"-shaped, as was the farmhouse, with frame walls sheathed in cypress. It features large window openings, and a flat roof with parapet or thin edge overhang. A guest house was added to the property in the early 1950s. It was designed by its owner, noted architect Oskar Stonorov.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. It is located in the Middle Pickering Rural Historic District.[1]
